Ostia’s Hybrid Integration Platform on IBM’s Cloud Marketplace



According to Gartner1, ‘Hybrid integration platforms (HIPs) are a new way to connect cloud-based, mobile and on-premises resources’; that’s quite a mouthful, what does it mean?

There is a growing demand by large enterprises to leverage the benefits of cloud and mobile computing. Until relatively recently, these enterprises have expended significant energy and resources on ensuing all their data is kept in secure data centre silos. That data only made it to the outside world in traditional form such as statements, invoices and the like. Enterprises are now being challenged by their customers and are under competitive Digital Innovation pressure to make better use of this very valuable data resource; making selected data more widely available whilst at the same time, maintaining a highly secure operation. Hence the need for HIPs – using Cloud computing technologies to get selected data securely, but quickly and easily, from the enterprise’s firewall protected core processing engines, to mobile and web devices without impacting or making any changes to those critical core systems. Ostia’s Portus technology is an agile, ‘point and click’ and innovative HIP solution that addresses both the legacy and modern worlds; it is equally at home running on a mainframe as on today’s state-of-the-art data server.

Ostia, using IBM’s Bluemix and Softlayer Cloud infrastructure, offer the agile and secure HIP approach using its Portus platform as shown below.


Portus is used to create APIs in seconds from traditionally difficult to access technologies such as VSAM, CICS and ADABAS data. These APIs are then accessible in a controlled and secure way from the Cloud environment. The following Bluemix app is displaying combined data from VSAM and ADABAS files on an IBM z/OS system:


These are two of the most difficult on-premise resources on the most difficult platform to access. Of course this can be used for any on-premise data store you may have on any platform. For more information on how Ostia can help please visit Ostia’s website: www.ostiasolutions.com
